I made layered jello poke cupcakes. The other day I shared some banana muffins that I layered with cream cheese and preserves. After seeing Elizabeth's birthday cupcake jars, I fancied the thought of making birthday cupcake jars for my daughter to share with her classmates on her birthday. I realized jars for third graders is not a good idea.
Nikki at Whimsy Love presented these layered cupcakes in plastic cups, and these were the perfect solution.
I decided to go with jello-poke cupcakes. They are very moist, kid-friendly cupcakes.
Here is an informal recipe:
*Bake cupcakes using yellow cake mix, and allow them to cool completely.
*Poke holes generously over each cupcake with a wooden skewer (a fork will work, too).
*Prepare strawberry jello and spoon a teaspoon or two on each cupcake.
*Add vanilla frosting and sprinkles on top.
*Layer a cupcake on another.
*Cool in the fridge for at least 4 hours. Overnight would be better.
These were a hit with the kids! :)
